Nails of the Day – Ciaté Cupcake Queen

This polish is another sent from Powder Rooms – this time it’s by Ciaté, another brand I have never tried before. The bottle is a cute horizontal rectangular shape with a long black handle, and black bow around the bottom of the handle. The label states that Ciaté Paint Pots are ‘long lasting full coverage nail enamel’ which so far, seems true.

The polish was extremely thick in formula, which meant that a second coat really wasn’t necessary, but I went for it all the same and used Poshe topcoat on top. The colour looks really glossy and is wearing well. I’m currently on day 2 and no chips or wearing to be seen. The shade ‘Cupcake Queen’ is a cool toned pink – in the bottle you can see lots of blue shimmer, but this doesn’t show once it’s on your nails at all, and I’ve examined it in many different kinds of light. It looks like a completely flat pink.

As you can see from the picture, it looks quite thick – as this is the first Ciaté Paint Pot I’ve tried I’m unsure whether this is unique to this shade, but I have a few more colours to try so will report back. It almost looks like gel nails on my nails. A very grown up kind of polish – lovely.

    It is a rather gorgeous colour, I love pinks anyway and this is a good true pink. What is the brush like? Your blog has some lovely pics. Jan x

    Thank you!

    The brush is quite flat and wide making it quite easy to use, it was just the thickness which made it a little harder. x
